The Nightmare before Christmas - Jack's Slay

Return to Oz - Flying Moose couch

B. Zardoz Giant rocks heads flying though the sky aren't possible

i. It has no way to possibly fly - Doesn't glide, no lift, no thrust.

ii. Not aerodynamic

iii. Weight alone wouldn't get it off the ground.

C. The Nightmare before Christmas jacks flies a slay through the sky with three reindeer lead by zero the dog.

i. no action reaction on the skeleton reindeers feet and the ground. No way for it to move forward.
